The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 167: Control Equals Freedom and Happiness
"Welcome to the porn reboot podcast where you get practical tips to gaining control over your porn or sex addiction I'm your host jk amazing certified sex and porn addiction recovery coach, welcome to episode. Today we're going to talk about why. Control. Actually equates to happiness during your reboot. At Porn reboot we have very simple promise, and that promises. We will get you to control your sexual behavior within ninety days. Any man who follows us will control their sexual behavior in that timeframe. And over next year and a half to two years following the system. Usually on your own, but you can still do it with us. You will go through the rebooting process and rewiring your brain permanently. Ending your compulsive behavior. But why the word control! I've sometimes been asked JK. I feel that the word control and this is by people who are not in assist them. Just people who are on the outside. The like I feel I. Control is sort of a cop out because you're so used to hearing about. Abstinence which I've spoken about in the past right and when you? Struggled with an opponent masturbation for years. It's normal to feel as if the would control within. Ninety days. that. It's too good to be true I and there must be something hidden behind the word control, just control, and if I relapse. That's because I lost control right. I get it I. Think it's a fair criticism and I also think it's absolutely fair to be skeptical about that as I've often said before you know when you are these days, especially in the age of information, it is important to be skeptical and zoom. Bullshit with everything that you've come across on the Internet. Now. You may think that you want to end this behavior for good. And while this is certainly the case for some men, it isn't the case for many others. Sometimes you feel that you want to end it for good because quote, unquote control has failed too many times. The truth is that we all strive for control. We think we want freedom. or balanced lives, more money and happy relationships, but at the end of the day. We really want some sense of control over all these things. For instance when a man says, he wants a balanced life, what he usually really means that he wants to be able to choose for himself whatever he puts his time into. Think about it. When a man says that he wants to improve his financial situation, you really means that he wants control over his situation. And his livelihood. When it comes to your sexual behavior, the only way that you can gain control is by becoming an expert at adapting to information which you learn about your sexual behavior. You then make changes. And after you make these changes, you keep making tiny adjustments moving forward. To achieve your reboot goals. It's Kinda like a video game where you have very few lives right and the only way that you have control over the game and you only way you can win is by getting good at adapting information you learn when you die at a certain level or a certain stage. Right and so the next time you begin to game, and you're like okay cool. I have only two more lives before it's game over. You Start Making adjustments in your game play style. As you get to higher levels. Instead, what many minute doing when it comes to their re Buddhists that they're playing a game one life. Where every death and the game is game over immediately. And what you then do, take this metaphor forward as you then play multiple different video games each with one life, which leads to game over each time you fail, and eventually conclude that you suck at video games, and that's what many men are doing. The bottom line brother is that. You can control behavior with pornography and masturbation. All you need to do. Is Learn how to adapt and at the root of adapting. Is Control. You cannot adapt unless you have some measure of control. Over your behavior. Now. This is actually a topic which can get. A little bit complex so. I'm going to add onto it over the next few days, and this is probably going to lead me to share some of the deeper concepts that I reserve for intensive program, but it doesn't matter purpose of this podcast is. GonNa, give you actionable steps which you can use towards your reboots. I'm actually looking forward to that. In the meantime thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this episode of the porn would podcast I'll speak to you and a couple of days.

Your Unique Selling Proposition As A New Coach | EP 22
"And the World of coaching and consulting you're told to just show up be yourself and help your clients live their best life so you go through a coach training you put in your hours for review you build your website and then you're told because of the training that you've received people will be silly to not want to work with you you're not really sure where to go so you're pouring all of your energy into all of these places and it doesn't seem to be coming together why isn't anyone notice being an online entrepreneur is not an easy job can you it's as if you came to the party you've got a nice outfit on and you've got your smile but so does everybody else lasting and memorable coaching and consulting business and what it takes to develop a strong content strategy without spending years coming up with ideas and that doesn't mean where a flashier address that doesn't mean have a bigger website because people still may not notice you but what it does mean as the creating sales funnels changing their funds again meditating and telling yourself positive affirmations every morning posting to facebook when they feel totally strapped and they're not sure what to do to grow that following and they feel like they may have spent forever not only being in school to learn how to be a coat head changing the font on their headline writing connecting the tack on the email sequences creating a big signature offer building the sales page for that offer wall you have gone through the exercises many times you're going through these basic exercises that all coaching programs do take you through where you are so you feel like you've put your heart and soul into your business right you've gone through this long coaching training you have the certification on the flight your coach in a sea of coaches and you have to figure out number one how you are going to be standing out from all of the others coaching and then you're just gonNa have a flood of clients right on today's episode I'm sharing why simply being yourself is not enough and developing a strong you felt inspired hours no way tease spent planning to Pinterest and in reality you were focusing on really important things you get clients and that's the one thing that a lot of new coaches and consultants are coming to me with a just need a client like yesterday there at this point are your coaching and consulting school or realizing hey it's time to hang up your shingle to start your own business because maybe you've been a consultant in another area spirt and what marketing strategies have been influential and getting our message and mission to our clients now you have your weekly prescription to improve your mindset motive it takes a certain mindset brilliant marketing and the ability to take action when others won't I'm Jessica Wayman your host and founder of Power of Brilliance Coaching and unique solution to their problem there isn't any level of marketing or any level of branding that you can do to find success in your business and how to get through the consulting side of what they're doing but they may have spent forever building their website writing and creating they're sales pages for all those ideas in there you're putting yourself into situations as your clients in front of other people to practice I mean there's a whole gamut of it what they don't teach you a lot of times is how of the mastermind course Rehab I'll share my own and other CEO's inspiring stories on how we've dealt with the psychology of entrepreneurship how to stand out as the go-to until you know how you are able to set yourself apart from all of the other coaches and consultants in the world you might even be offering the same exact thing you need to know what you do and how it's different from the other coaches out there what is it about what you offer that provides your clients with the but in your unique way you're delivering it differently so one of the first things I can say on how to action are you an action engaging credible tools for growing a business you absolutely love this is the resilient CEO podcast yes but the one thing you didn't have in place was how you were going to stand out from everyone else so let's talk a little bit about that when you are getting through we build this brand by being yourself is that there's a lot of work that goes into it the one thing you have to have in place before you can do any marketing before you probably want to build your website or run a challenge or running event posting groups all of that you need to know exactly of that consistency baby that is the next most important thing if you are not consistent with creating content and post changing or pivoting every few minutes that you are consistent in your people that you're speaking to but also the platforms and it's not a good idea to be being it where your people are hanging out then you're absolutely not going to find results and I'm talking about being consistent in your messaging so that you're not just you how your solution is going to provide that transformation for your client and what your unique selling proposition is so once you have everywhere at once now I'm not saying that Pinterest doesn't work I'm not saying that being on twitter and being on instagram and facebook and all of these platforms even talk I'm not saying that those don't work what I am saying is that you really need to master one particular platform and master it well that specific that you are delivering for your clients and then choose I would say no more than two platforms to focus on where you're going to be sharing your content absolutely spreading yourself way too thin so go deep with that first of all figuring out what your unique selling proposition is and the transformation I've even seen people do really well in to platforms but if you're trying to be on five different platforms using every single option that they offer on those platforms you were Oh i hate to tell you this well maybe I don't okay let's be real I don't hate to tell you this at all I think it's really important that you hear this piece it doesn't mean you're GonNa Post when you only feel inspired I have seen so many coaches and consultants say well I just I didn't feel inspired so it where are you going to be sharing the five pillars that your business stands for where you're going to be driving traffic to and focus on one to two platforms but also isn't the right time to post a facebook. I need to post when I feel inspired so maybe I'm inspired at eight thirty at night but my audience is actually up early in the morning at six am but that's when I felt inspired well good luck with that that's all I have to say it might be time to read evaluate how you're putting your content out there maybe when you feel inspired is when you should actually start batching your content based on the five pillars just filling space like finding a cool quote which I've done before I'm guilty but it's really important that you put thought and time into your then you're only going to get on a fraction of the places that you could be and I'm not advising to spend hours a day on social media and to show up to every single as to have paid traffic but also you can do this organically now keep in mind if you are going to be posting organically that is I'm an blog three times a week I'm GONNA post to facebook every single day and then I'm just not going to do anything else no paid advertising Nick at all so be that pattern interrupt in your clients newsfeed really show up differently than everyone else figure out what is unique about you is the long haul game don't expect to have a business that takes off right away with just organic outreach it means that you're probably just throwing a bunch of money at facebook it's like throwing a bunch of money into a slot machine and you will leave the casino broke you will leave the internet feeling more discouraged than when you first got GonNa go build relationships and groups I'm not going to go to any events they're just not for me well they're not really putting your all into figuring out how party on the Internet but what I am telling you is that when you are consistent your audience will take notice and that doesn't mean okay drive traffic to that content so batch your content and make sure that the content that you're putting out there is valuable it's not in your niche as the go-to coach and consultant so number one this is probably one of the fastest ways I've seen people grow following is by using paid advertising is that you were going to be talking about in your business I would say batch your content when you get those moments of inspiration because if you're only posting sporadically and the solution that you're providing to your clients I did come up with a list of a few ways that you can drive traffic to all of those things that you have worked on more clients or potential clients to see what you're doing so let's talk a little bit about that oh by the way with all of this you get to be yourself content strategy if you're not putting thought and time into your content strategy you're just like everybody else showing up on the Internet just to take up space and that is not you and by driving traffic that can be done through paid means like facebook ads people are also using linked in ads at this point lots of different ways let's now I getting started now I'm not saying poor a bunch of money into ads and that's going to bring you clients overnight you have to be willing to split test your ads if you say I'm GonNa talk a little bit about a week and mix all of this together but there is certainly a recipe that I feel is going to help you to get Graham all of that make sure that if you don't know what you're doing don't waste a bunch of time and try to do it on your own hire someone that knows how to run facebook ads so as long as you're showing up as you and you're using those five pillars of content making sure that you're delivering what your clients actually need not what you think that going to have to put a little bit of money behind facebook ads or it might mean that you need to be solidly connected to other people's networks that also want to hear what you have to awesome depending on the platform and that means that you're paying higher cost for a conversion and that can that can be very difficult for someone hire someone that knows how to split test ads how choose split test audience says how to create lookalike audiences custom audiences all of that when you using that can be on facebook instagram willing din like I've said before your ads are also going to be on Google but they could be more expense us until I am blue in the face and I know that it might seem repetitive but the reason I talk about leveraging other people's audiences those people that are gaining their content by being able to consume it on the go that's the beauty of having podcast now the beauty of this too they need and ensuring that you are delivering in places that they are hanging out at the right time I mean there's a lot that goes into this but this is going to help you become known who are first building a list that actually might be kind of effective I've seen some people do this were they put facebook ads the hind their freebies not everybody has a free into the podcast from tomorrow all the way through six months from now as long as the interviewer is keeping their podcast up keeping it running all of that are working on and putting out on the Internet is to leverage other people's audiences you will hear me say this again and I'll probably say that I don't know six months from now but that content lives on so if you're on a podcast let's say tomorrow you're probably getting hits where people are listening on the Internet and then you won't follow through and that's not what I want for you so with facebook advertising Google Lincoln and I need your unique solution also go interview on podcast now usually people hear about other podcasts because they're podcasters they may have an audience that's larger than yours and by sharing other people's audiences that way you're able to get in front of those people that is is because it is seriously I would say the most effective organic strategy that anyone can implement in their business to be able to get in front of the right people so appear online summits if someone says hey do you wanna be a part of my summit as long as those people are in alignment with who you are is that podcasts are evergreen content so you might do an interview let's say tomorrow and that may not be listened to until trying to serve than I would say yeah do it it does require work just like anything else but it is important to leverage other people's audiences more about getting on podcast and how you can secure those interviews and challenge around it in my facebook group mindful marketing for online entrepreneurs Sultan's but this is seriously what it takes to be able to show up in the online world today you have to be willing to do things that might but it is a great way to build your list as long as you are targeting the ad towards the right people if you're just building list of people that really don't have any it's or that's how they consume information so if you're able to get on podcast interviews you're able to not only leverage other people's audiences but you're reaching I'm talking about getting serious if you're going to leverage other people's audiences then you need to get on more than just a handful of them and I'm actually going to be interest in what you have to offer then all of that money is completely wasted so the other really big one of Howard to drive traffic to all of this awesome content that you're entity a lot of times those people are helping their audience to gain content that they may not otherwise have and they wanna make their groups interesting so they're pulling in experts so if you're not in there right now shameless plug go ahead and jump on in it's a pretty fun place to hang out but yeah I mean getting on podcasts is scare you and if you're not willing to do things that scare you just even a little bit probably shouldn't be in the business okay another way that you can leverage other people's awesome stuff was being a podcast or your content will live on and I'm not talking about just picking a handful of podcast to go beyond no I have an interest in what you're doing and they wanNA share what they're doing with you so if you're not able to go to in person events being on podcast is a great way to connect with other entrepreneurs as well another way you can connect with other people's audiences is to go interview on facebook live as someone's guest on their page or in there a very beneficial way to grow your audience but the great part too is that if you are going through an interview you talk to other really cool entrepreneurs people so here's another way you can leverage other people's audiences write about your topic on a major publication now. I think this is actually pretty fun you can facebook lives I would say do scared and same thing with podcasts you might be a little afraid to put yourself out there especially as a brand new coach they know that that particular person is going to serve their audience in a different way that is an option and then attending events and interacting with people like that -lutely not I know for fact that this business is a conglomeration of introverts extroverts extroverted introverts times people are willing to email their lists for people that they are connected with that maybe they've gotten results from that maybe they're friends with or in contributing writers and that are appealing to your ideal clients major needs and immediate problems you can even go on Cora and answer questions what's that are in their specific niches and they're bringing those people in to provide the group with stronger content so if you do get asked to be interviewed on awkward junior high dance where everybody sits on opposite sides of the room staring at each other yeah that was my junior high but anyway what I'm saying right an article you can self publish it on medium on thrive global sometimes mind body green anywhere where they're accepting and yes you're either going to be trading time or money or both but in order to succeed in today's marketplace zero people something that may be guides them through journey that gives them a realization that helps them come to maybe a new idea that they hadn't thought of that using the written word it's really cool because it's evergreen content and you're able to put your efforts into an article that teaches has you need to be willing to interact with people and I'm not saying like coaching salting is only reserved for outgoing personalities absolutely we're all here at the party but you need to be able to take the necessary actions to show up in front of your audience and also to gravity or audience to you you're going to have to give something up in order to grow your business grow your following there will be a little bit of that sacrifice I don't view it as you and your business standby but just know that there are so many ways that you can leverage other people's audiences and be able to grow your following and says is to have your friends or your connections online email their list about you who you serve what you solve specifically a lot of helps them to be able to see themselves in a new light or maybe to find the humor in something whatever you end up writing about make sure it's an alignment with those five pillars of content that you soccer vice I viewed as an investment in myself so another way that you can drive traffic is to use chat bots and you can connect the is facebook live neither is interviewing for other people's shows neither is podcasting nothing in the online world of building a business air because that is a resource just like youtube it's a search engine so utilize these major publications as a way to put yourself out there what about a particular topic and that's actually a pretty cool way to engage people because you're engaging them even if they're on different time zones and even this keyword in and this is very much a general overview botts it's way more complicated but you could say type this keyword in and then you're I would say for the next ninety days and schedule it that can be done using things like co schedule meet Edgar Plan that plan live often and I mean consistently because live video is what facebook and instagram are favouring they want is actually to your facebook lives where you are building your audience and you might use a particular keyword on your facebook live and you can say type. Oh definitely check into that if you haven't done it before I'm also going to be including some links in the show notes to share more about these resources had this is online and in person if you don't interact we're not even gonNA know you exist so it's really important to put yourself out there this isn't -tising through obtaining products through putting time into their youtube channel through a lot of ways to be able to get in front of their ideal clients the videos from their creators and videos are actually shown three to one compared to a static post videos a very powerful way to deliver your message and Yeah I think you're GonNa love all the ways you can drive content and try traffic to that content okay so chat bots are not a one and done thing neither ver- who you are what you do and the most important thing is the unique solution that you provide to your clients it's also really important you keep your social media accounts active while showing up in other ways so I cannot urge this enough plan out your content if they can't get to your content right away but it does aid and increasing your visibility and there's a lot of ways that you can use bots and game by their facebook experience it's going to either require your time or your money or both in order to grow your business just like any other business grows through Ad Israel so I will share link for that and if you want to share a little bit of money that's probably a good way to do it through that link the most important thing that I can tell you when you are flute favorite because you can create content calendar there's lots of other ways to review the content there's lots of ways to build it out I mean it's very Nali there's lots of options out there and I will leave my suggestions in the show notes for you to review but I can tell you that co schedule is my is usually very effective if you just set it and forget it it's a good way to burn your business and the house down go live and everybody's going to notice you it requires effort and through that effort you will see results but if you stop that momentum and you stop that effort Ernie as an online CEO your business all links to our information from guests or for myself are located in our show notes which can be found at Jessica Wayman Dot Com appear this is not a situation like field of dreams where you're going to build it and they will come and it's not a situation of wearing the cutest red bright dress at the party and then they're also putting in their time and or their money so remember it's not just about posting on social media everyday and waiting for them you're a new coach or consultants and you need to grow your following 'cause you needed clients like yesterday is that this is definitely something you need to be consistent about dance will be introduced to your butts they then have to agree that they are talking to about and then from there they can have a full conversation with your boss. I five and help other online. CEO's make this world a better place see you next week for another dose of Resilience Mindful Marketing and brilliant breakthroughs for your the programs. Tell you to write out a list of fifty people that you know to share your recent accomplishment with because those people must know more people that need Alf be present for your people share who you are to your absolute core keep your values your goals and show up and st you're not going to get to the goals that you want to get and you won't be able to reach those clients who really need you remember to stay consistent be present for years in for what you do stand for and let them know what you stand against and by showing up as a human being well there's nothing more brilliant than that sports flash CEO notes also it would be so awesome if you could share this podcast with your friends and leave review on I tunes. It's a way to give me a virtual. Hey thanks so much for listening the resilient. CEO podcast today.

The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 151: The Power of Questions
"Welcome to the porn reboot podcast where you get practical tips to gaining control over your phone or sex addiction I'm your host Jay Amazing. Certified I had sex and porn addiction recovery coach welcome to the episode. Today we're going to speak about the power of questions. Now early on in my reboot, I was a big Fan of self development I, read a lot of self development books. I was big on things like positive affirmations and goal setting, and this did help a lot when it came to my reboots. However, there was one area of self development that I struggled with a lot, and that was using positive affirmations and self talk. And this was something that sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. And one of the things that we do here at Porn reboot is we talk about the concept of working with your brain? Instead of against it, and that's the reason why I'm constantly bringing up. The ineffectiveness of willpower right so if you use an affirmation or you give yourself a command. And your subconscious mind disagrees with it so for instance if you say that ninety days from now, I am in full control of my sexual behavior. Well your subconscious. Mind is going to disagreed gonNA, say hey, man you. You didn't say that the last time. And you've never been able to do that. What it does is that it resists. The command and whenever your subconscious mind resists the command. Then, you are working against your brain instead of with your brain. That's the reason why you said all these very firm and strong goals for yourself when it comes to your sexual behavior. But nothing happens, and that's simply because there's no proof. There's nothing for your subconscious mind to go with, and your conscious mind is the only thing that believes it. But for you to accomplish anything worthwhile boat your conscious. Your subconscious mind needs to be working together. What I found to be more effective as actually picking an action item something you want to take action. And placing it in form of a question so. Let's say you're having some issues with your wife. Your relationship with your wife so. Instead of saying, I need to fix my relationship with my wife. To which your brain to quickly say or unconsciously say? A hold up a second. You need to do this, okay. What's going to happen? It's it's going to wait for you to have a problematic situation with your wife and the first thing that's going to say is see. That's why you need to fix this relationship with your wife. It's always going to remind you same thing with a need to quit watching porn I need. Stop screwing around with this behavior. You're GONNA do it again. And your brain is GonNa. Say See you need to do that or you really need to quit using pornography. Because look, you can't focus. Look you have Pi ed, but it won't take action using I need to only allows your brain to remind you of how much you need it, but. If you instead ask yourself. Let's take that problematic situation problematic relationship with your life. Can I fix my relationship with my wife so that we can move past this issue about my porn addiction and create intimacy, or we could phrase it the question a different way. What can I do each day to change my relationship with my wife so that we can move past my issue with porn addiction and create intimacy. And our relationship. Same thing goes with your porn addiction. What can I do each day to control my sexual behavior so I'm no longer a slave to my triggers, and so that I can live a life which is free of compulsive behavior. Now when you ask this question. It activates your subconscious to start seeing hearing looking for the things you need, so you say. Can I fix my relationship with my wife so that this this this? So that we can gain more intimacy. There's nothing to object sue. Instead you start looking for how you can do that, your conscious mind does it end your subconscious. Mind starts looking for ways to fix it. What can I do each day to change my relationship with my wife? What can I do each day? To control my sexual behavior. Your subconscious mind can definitely work with that. So you put it to work. It starts looking for something that you can do each day. There is no resistance. So brother that is a concept that I wanted to share with you from the porn reboot system. The power of questions amend just to clarify I. Get emails from men. Sometimes asking for you know, do like me some tools, different coping strategies I think this is a good time to explain the difference between a concept and a tool occasionally I'll sheriff's who'll and the podcast, but most of our tools within our private groups, but most of the time what I'm sharing concepts, so in tool is something which you can use to actively help you in the moment. But the beauty of a concept is that a concept is going to force you to answer new questions, and when you can answer new questions, you can have your subconscious mind working with you. You stop being stuck in a Rut usually the right you've been in of using willpower to end you out of control behavior, and that's really what the porn re would podcast this about a lot of times I shed tips, but most of the time I am sharing concepts. This allows you to ask new questions and VATA's. Why thousands literally thousands of men have been making progress in ending. Get out of control, behavior. By listening to this podcast and I do appreciate your being a listener. I'm Jay, your brother struggle. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this episode of the Porn Reboot podcast now whenever you're ready, they are a few ways that I can help you and your out of control behavior. The first way is download a copy of my free book if you haven't. It's called seven secrets of Porn, free men, and it's the road mapped ending out of control behavior. The second way is to join our free facebook group. Self Accountability partner join men who are serious about ending this behavior and finally if you are at a stage in your e boots where you feel that you're wasting a lot of time, and these are tough times, Brothers these are uncertain times we'd covid nineteen with all these political and social unrest, many of leaning into our unhealthy coping strategies to get through this period. If you are at a point where you realize that your behavior is escalating, and you need somebody to help you end this behavior of control, it quicker. Show you how to do it. Step by step. If you just need a little hand, holding and guiding through the process. Then, you may be a good fit for one of our group coaching programs. We have two programs when it's called the implementation program and another one is called the reboots intensive, and if you'd like to learn more about them and find out if you're qualified, then used the link in the description below the podcast scheduled call with one of my team members.

CLC Day 53: How will you show up?
"Started zero. Dr Dave in today's Day. Fifty three of the crease leader challenge. Welcome back most of your getting back to work. I think we'll continue this daily regimen until they sixty so in weeks worth. I've committed to recording building a recording two courses and writing a book this summer. So there's lots more content to be had but We'll shift gears in about a week and in this next week I gonNA dive into this model this framework a little deeper so that you have a few more insights and strategies to give you some certainty and confidence so this first activator is clarity. Always clarity on. We don't have clarity. We could add velocity and go faster and further in the wrong direction so we have to decide what we want and the next ninety days we may not be able to have what we want but we can get trapped trending in that direction and the most important thing in my mind is. How does the leader show up? And I'm assuming you're the leader and the book that I recommended maybe two weeks ago as Viktor. Frankl's man's search for meaning and he explains that we as humans as opposed to other animals have because stem between stimulus and response is a small space where we have the ability to choose and decide and so you get to decide how you show up to work. Every day you can be reactive. You can be a tyrant um but that's only a create more problems for you and your team and your patients in your family. So what I'm challenging you to do is to define how you WANNA show up and how you want to be remembered and the next ninety days one week no big deal two weeks no big deal but we have to appreciate this as an inert endurance game and we have to decide how we're going to show up so that we're not knocked off course by all these fear minded people in our environment. We have to be more certain than them. Because that's what leaders do so. Boil that my challenge to you is to boil that down to one word that may be courageous and may be certain that may be resilient may be anti fragile. It might be bad. Assery something that's easy to define whether you've done it or not a not all days. We'll go as planned. But if you don't have a target you can't hit targets you can't see you don't have a target. You're going to be all over the place all over the time and by not defining how you WANNA show up in. The next ninety days will leave that up to some ugly default Because Challenging Times require more of us and we have to decide what that more looks like in the most clear way to do that is to boil it down to one word. You may right at the top of her journal every day. You may use it as a mantra. You may use a doorway trigger when you walk into the office you say I am whatever. This thing is But that's what high-performers do and that's what you should do Because it'll allow you to get the traction you want as quickly as possible. Things training upward and re normalize or new normal highs is a better term. Your Business as quickly as possible. That's what I want for yourself. That's the challenge for today. Define who you how. You'RE GONNA show up in one word. How do you WANNA feel? How do you want to be remembered? Are Two questions that you can sit with. What I would do is brainstorm a list of seven to ten words and then process of elimination defined the best The one more that brings out the best in your should stir something with a new And then lock in. Remind yourself that every single day for the next ninety days okay. That's all for today be will be back with you tomorrow for day fifty four.
72: Proven Ways To Deliver Value Fast In Your New Product Management Job
"What should you do when you first get started on a new product management job or with a new product that you don't know that much about and what I mean is, how can you start delivering value right away you're one of the most expensive people on staff most likely it would be great. If people felt you weren't just a boat anchor when you show up. So, there's a lot of advice out there about your first ninety days in a new product management job. In fact, we have a podcast episode in the archives. It's episode nine from quite a long time ago at all the responsibility dot com slash nine. Called Guarantee. Success. In your first one, hundred days in a new product management job. Now my co host at the time McGrady and I provided ten things you could do to help ensure your long term success in the new job. These were I've got a list of them and I recommend listening to the whole episode if you want the details but basically things like meet with everybody. Understand your boss's expectations. Figure out what the assumptions are be that everybody has test those assumptions out about the product about the market things like that. Get on some help and sales calls to you can find out how people are talking to customers and what the customers are saying get introduced to your top partners get a list of information stream. So you can find out where to find stuff out. Understand what your boss thinks are good at. Because you don't WanNa step on their your bosses toes and get or complete a product audit. Now, that's a lot of stuff to do and it will definitely prepare you to be the product expert in the future and to know how the business specifically works into a lot of details. You know, and this list is pretty similar to a lot of the other I. Ninety Days List even those ours is special because it's actually a days obviously it quite different. List and most of them don't say much about delivering value right away. So what else should you be doing? How do you provide value right away? Should you expect to be able to and our other people expecting it? Well, in my experience, you can provide value right away and you should expect it of yourself, and if your colleagues aren't expecting it, that makes you look even better. So that's a plus. But of course, they are expecting a lot from you because they're likely in pain right now from not having enough product management already. You came on and you're GonNa make their life better. So it's nice if you can start doing that right away. Hi. This is nells Davis and you're listening to episode number seventy, two of. All the responsibility, none of the Authority podcasts, product managers, and all folks and product. Now, I do this podcast because I. Think there's better models in ways of thinking about doing product management and being a product manager unfortunately too often were pitched and trained on the wrong old models and ideas, and I would almost put the first ninety days kinds of lists into that category. Slightly, it's not that those are wrong, but there's some other things you need to think about. So in each episode I. Try to look at sort of old thinking maybe break it down maybe shattered if I can or at least challenge it and give you new ideas new mental models and new approaches to product management to what we do why we do it, how to do it better and more effectively and of course, I like to talk about the impact of making these improvements as well. Now, this episode obviously focused on how to make a difference when you've just joined the team and you don't know anything Now. You can find the notes for the show plus a place to leave me a comment or a complaint on the episode at all responsibility dot com slash seventy two. Now in the note, you'll find links to several articles and previous podcast episodes related to what I cover here and the good news is you can start contributing value right away. It might not look like it does later when you're more of an expert, but it's still highly valuable so. What are you do? Well you. Kinda go back to the basics. Now I've mentioned before this is an episode number three to seven. Every successful product is successful in the same way. Every unsuccessful product is unsuccessful in its own way and we'll do I mean by that. Well, it means that there's like six or seven different things at a successful product has successfully done right from finding a market problem to creating a good solution to having good market and some other things and unsuccessful products typically. Those things or more has broken down. And so that means there will be signs and indicators. Even if you don't know much at all about the product, they can give you insights about where to focus on improving things meaning there are things that are likely to be going wrong. Especially, if the product is having problems in the market or there's some kinds of problems with the product and you can use product since to spot those and sometimes to take action to start addressing them even without knowing much about the product at all. Hopefully, you have some products sense if you don't have products all my podcast episodes and you get it and you can start using your products sense to look around and see where there are opportunities. Now. This is also a chance at this early stage to use your actual newness and unfamiliarity with the way things are done to see if the emperor might not be fully dressed. Of course, taking action on any of these things is pretty hard if you're new but you can start by at least making the observations and maybe applying what you learned later. Now the next thing you can do is you can also figure out what people think they know, but they don't really know all explain this a little bit more. This is things like how does the system actually work? How do the pieces fit together? What is the data flow what all the parts are? What are the assumptions at different components make about each other kind of what the product does and why. Just as an example of that, I've gotten a lot of mileage from a very simple diagram I drew of how one of the systems I worked on flowed across the life cycle of a client coming on board. So it started from. The first call with the prospect salesperson calls the prospect they'd go through the sales process, they signed the contract, and then that client comes on board to our platform. And there's a lot of things that happened in that process because of the particular type of software that this was now I shared that diagram many times with many people within the company, both New People and experience people and I got uniform responses that it was incredibly valuable. Gave them insights. They did not have before an understanding that no one had ever given them. In other words, I drew a picture of basic process at this company had been doing for many years. That had never been drawn before. And I find kind of amazing how no one has drawn out things in a way that season understand and I know that doesn't just happen at this particular company I know what happens at a lot of companies 'cause I've seen it a lot. It can be especially problematic if the. Product is large and complex with lots of kind of defacto silos where the people in the different silos. No matter how well intentioned. The are might not know everything that's going on in the silos before them after them and yet they depend on those other silos for their data or to process the things that they hand on and so. Drawing. These visualizations can be incredibly powerful and actually can create a huge amount of value and it's a perfect time to do it when you don't know anything because you just go and ask people what happens. Then tell me about this piece. Oh do you have this data? Do you have that data? Where did you get that data? What do you know about that data? What happens to that data later on and then you go ask somebody Else about what they do with the data, and you may find a totally different story about what they do at the data, very interesting process to do and very illuminating and quite valuable, and you do not have too much in order to actually draw these visualizations now. I. Usually personally do this in powerpoint because that's the kind of person. I, am I'm not good at drawing tools. I would love to be good at drawing tools, but I'm not. But you can use whatever drawing till you like you might even like to do it on a whiteboard although I think it's valuable to have it in some form that you can easily share and modify an update I actually use powerpoint animation features to kind of animate the flow of things happening sometimes not always. You know basically I just start out though by drawing some boxes representing the major steps. That a customer might go through or that whatever the process looks like I draw some Eros between those boxes indicating the data flows or process flows, whatever it might be. You know if you WANNA get super fancy, you can kind of start annotating the flow. You can start putting little pictures of people on about what roles do different operations and things like that. But get super fancy on this. You can just get basic you can just add a little bit of annotation to make things more clear. You know you can put on what data's traveling on these flows or which rolls use the flow or how often the flow happens. There's all kinds of different things you can do. But it turns out that simply mapping out the flow can be winning for your colleagues. Now another thing that's really valuable. When you first started is you can act as a user yourself and learning the application from their perspective. This isn't always possible depending on the complexity of the application, but often it is. Remembering that. You know particularly if you're an enterprise software where your software does some kind of job. Your users are not really interested in becoming experts in your product most of them are not. They're interested in getting their jobs done better and so if you can. Put yourself into their shoes and think about doing the job with the product even just the on boarding step is often really revealing about whether the product really cares that much about the customer whether thinks about the customer or the user. If it makes good. Good default choices and things like that. But any amount of time that you can spend using your own product particularly when you're really naive about it is really valuable and it's sometimes hard to make happen depending on what the APP does but you can often learn a lot and get some good insights. In fact right now in the APP that I'm responsible for I'm about to make well I've been making some improvements for problems that I observed when I first started a few years ago. It can take a long time sometimes to apply the things you learn when you first get started. To the solution itself, but it can be really valuable and the improvements that I've made have actually made a big change. One of the interesting things about these improvements so is that not too many people recognized that the improvements were there to be made. There was a little bit of A. Situation where people just thought this was the way things were done. There were a lot of manual steps and we're automating a lot of them and people didn't really realize that the things that they were doing that were tedious and air prone could be automated pretty interesting particularly in the Second Decade of the twentieth century that that is still true. But there you go. So a lot of good output an and they say I learned about these things I started learn about them in the first week that I was on this job. Another thing you can do is to start making decisions now. You probably won't have the opportunity to make big decisions when you first start, but the point is that often having decision. Is more important than the particular decision itself. That is as long as it's not a stupid decision. You're probably good and at this stage, you might want to limit yourself of course to the degree possible to reversible types of decisions. But someone has to make a decision to make progress you need decisions and it's your role to make them even if you don't have all the information in fact, our decisions are always made in the domain of uncertainty. It's just super uncertain when you're just starting out, you don't know anything and IT'S Only, sixty percent of the facts. and. This is also making these kinds of decisions. It's a good opportunity to show your ability to collaborate to learn from others and a half humility. To make a decent decision about a situation, you don't know much about you have to ask a lot of good questions and your new team will appreciate you asking those questions and they'll do their best to answer them for you. And there's a lot of things you can learn in this process by the way like how your team members think about the product how they think about the user. You can learn about whether you have usage data and things how much customer usage stated you actually have. You ask about have we gotten feedback on this change from from customers have customers requested this change? And you don't have any customer data. Well, that's very interesting data point to have. If you ask about how similar questions are decisions have been made in the past if there's a standard and you find out that there isn't one well, that's also useful. Information may be an opportunity for you to add more value by creating a standard for to make decisions. Now, the other thing at this point is you may go any may say, well I'm I think we should do X. and you then ask some questions or get some feedback from the team about how maybe is not the best solution maybe you should choose why and of course, there's never just two decisions to options. There's always x and Y, and A, and B B. Prime and. Xyz, and things like that. You may get feedback, and at that point, this is where you get to show how professional you are by saying, Oh what I realize that x was not the right decision. Let's now to why and then you get everybody on board with why and why is probably going to be a better decision at that point. But this process, it's a good way to learn to work with your team. It's a good way to learn things about your product, and sometimes the decision is just a forcing function to then drive the team to help you figure out what the actual correct decision is. So let's just quickly talk about what if you're actually not a new product manager what if you're experienced product manager on your current product, why would you be listening to this episode? Well, I think obviously my dulcet tones quite amazing but in reality. There's this concept of beginner's mind this idea that it's always really valuable to try to at least for a moment. Put yourself back in that situation where. All the stuff you know all the back end stuff you know isn't in the front of your mind let's say. And where you can again sort of put yourself in the customer's shoes in the shoes of somebody that doesn't know much and look at the world and see is this all making sense right? Because one of the things that happens as we learn a lot of things as we learn a lot about our product is we start to drink the KOOL aid. Basically, we start to understand why a thing that seems annoying to customers. Is the way it is, and then maybe we excuse it. But the fact is if it's annoying to customers, we probably shouldn't be excusing it. We should probably say, yes, I understand why it's that way but we still need to change it to make the customers experience better I mean obviously. Again there's a decision making process there you have to choose your battles but oftentimes as we get that curse of knowledge, it keeps us from seeing things from the customer's perspective from the perspective of simplicity from the perspective of just elegance and things like that. I think it's valuable to apply all of these ways of thinking even if you already know a lot even if you are an expert, even if you are the expert in the product at this point, it's really good to apply these ideas. So let's just rehash the techniques and you can think about them whether you're an expert or not. visualize. The processes. So. You might have to ask people about them. You might find out even if you're an expert, you might find out that there's things you've made assumptions about that. Aren't actually true as you do this process that's always fun and interesting but you also probably find out that things are not well visualized whether you're were you're starting out at with a new product or not. At least this has been my experience. There's always an opportunity to learn more about what's actually happening to visualize it better to make it more clear to everybody involved. User. Naievety, to spot the emperor's new clothes, put yourself in the customer's shoes. They don't know much. He's either and see if the product pitch makes sense to you. See if the product introduction when they start using, it makes sense all those things that can. Really make use of the fact that you don't know much and so you can't give the excuses that you might give once you know lot. This goes along with trying the product out the more you know about your project, the easier it is to gloss over problems. You know PSA cursive knowledge. When you don't know anything, it's harder to curse by this knowledge and it's easier to see problems that. Might Rub everybody the wrong way but you've just gotten so used to them if you're an expert that you don't notice them anymore. And make decisions we have to do that. Anyway you're going to do that throughout your job as a product manager and you might as well get started even if you don't know anything. So I hope you found these ideas useful come apply them in your job whether you're brand new or the local expert and guru on your product I. Love to hear any other suggestions you have for quickly delivering value when you first start a new job. You know it can be difficult to in challenging to put some of these ideas into practice without a guide I love working with product managers one on one to help them deliver more value wherever they are in their career, just starting out or been doing it a long time. And I'd be happy to spend a half hour on the phone with you. No obligation totally free to help you work on freeing up some value making some decisions. Maybe even visualizing something. Even short call like this can result in some amazing transformation, and if you want to build Dan on that conversation I have availability for coaching clients.

I want you to look at their faces. Really look at them and look at their eyes and watch how it shifts them. Watch how that one comment that you make of appreciation calling hauling the good and somebody makes a shift in their entire day and for some people that might be the first time somebody has complimented them or called out something good good in them maybe ever maybe in a long time maybe in a week right be the person that sees the goodness in people sees the positive things that they're doing and don't just see it. Call it out so my challenge for you. This week is to Show appreciation to people around. You do it at least one time everyday to at least one person and take note take note of a couple of things. Obviously what I've already said number one. What happens the shift on their face and how there is up but number two take note of how it makes you feel? It might feel a little awkward at first. Maybe you're not used to doing this. Maybe you've made at created a habit or made it a habit to kind of call out the negative right like you like making fun of people or ripping on people. It's part of your personality. You're just kind of dry like that but I will tell you that if you make the shift it. It doesn't mean that you're changing your personality. If you make the shift though you will change the energy in the room around you I will tell you that when when people feel appreciated she aided everything changes they will work harder. They'll be more kind They'll have better productivity They will actually be healthier. Sure they will be healthier if you're calling out the good in them and the same happens for you so it just is such a powerful thing to use your words words to build people up and leave people better than you found them this week even if it's super annoying co worker that actually it just bothers you every single day they do these little things. I want you to work extra hard at finding something to say to that co worker to speak life into them to call out the good took compliment them and tell them that you appreciate them.

C. case who I use for all my you can trust also there's a one CPA who happens to be a number of the thrive nation as well win your checking on trademark for podcast for example drive time show Ernie that law firm has represented everybody from Joel Osteen's books to td before you start using it is so important you do that because at some point King Dot Com to get permission to use said name in that process make a list of all the names that you would like to go by you know make a list of all the names that the big old list then take that list and meet with somebody like winters and King you think you'd be okay with going with and then they'll tell you which name you can use and then professional legal advice seeking legal advice for this just WanNa make this question four thirty in the morning and I am behind the building right now wants to know how do you figure out how making accounting mistakes she's wondering how she can afford to how how much you can afford to spend on I'm Jennifer if she'd like to have your payroll somewhere between by like an oxy fresh or elephant in the room or we you know we would sit there and tell you hey you should probably it always possible it depends what kind of business in because I know people who spend L. and they're only doing very small a sales and so they were all hey it's not guaranteed to produce a profit so in particular years that he made wooden things and he claimed and I there was into believe he was being dishonest and he made wooden things that no after year after year he's making these wooden things and he's making these things because everyone well usually once this region and you know touristy place and people drive through the kind of thing not an honor store at one kind of like you know there's a lot of handmade stuff that you know it'd be like a nice would stump live edge edge woodwork and live edge of but if I'm on vacation last thing I'm going to buy is desk and there's very few people who live in this to buy a Y. Veg desk or live edge something and then have it shipped home or you're on vacation and so when you want one of our stuff and as a marketing problem or is it a product get it in front more people just a marketing problem but people still are not going to want it and then that creates a anything so I'll just ask yourself do you have a product problem or marketing step one conduct a group interview every week we talk about on this podcast never stop conducting week and they wanted to know if we had any positions where we were just GonNa hire for twenty hours a week I don't can't afford to pay somebody twenty hours a week maybe finding some part time help is or do we have a traffic problem step to step to you're GONNA have to get into the point of exhaustion you're going to have to block out time in your schedule for life and Hey I'm done working at this time you gotta have to have some kind of boundaries of this is what I'm thirteen she'd want to enter in all of your income for the past for the past ninety days and put it into a spreadsheet if that's too daunting or not possible do out where is your money going and only then can we really start to very granular detailed based she would enter inaugur income we cut back. Where are we not seeing fruit here but again ask yourself bowers and never make money if it is product problem so I would urge all the listeners to ask five thirty percent of your budget being spent on labor your anyone thirty percent of your total gross revenue on Labor?

And so it'll be interesting that's one way to describe it. I I'll be honest. I'm a little nervous, I guess to sort of share what I've been feeling, but after presenting it and talking about it at a conference yesterday decided, you know, this is too valuable of story of a situation to not share it. So definitely I I'm going to be going as deep as I can in this episode, and I want to encourage you to make this a conversation.

Reduce and perform and do the things they need to do in order to grow build the business. They've always wanted Crete impact in income.

Do it now before the spots fill up out the application and will jump on an an enrollment call excuse me to get going now for today's episode. I wanna talk to you about. Last wednesday. So I'm recording this April twenty ninth publishing, April twenty ninth. And last Wednesday. I was broken I felt broken. I felt. Like, I was in this dark place. I couldn't get out of bed. I just laid in bed crying and watching episodes of the good doctor and feeling like a failure feeling like I couldn't keep going and really getting to this place where I felt like I just can't do it. I can't keep putting myself out. I can't keep trying. So how did I get there? Since launching this podcast. My life has changed in so many amazing ways I've been able to meet all of you. I've been able to help so many people around the world. I I was offered the opportunity to write and published a book, which is now out in the world and many of you have read it and send me your feedback in. It's like, it's amazing. Right. This thing that I started in my living room has turned into something that has a global reach. We have listeners in one hundred and seventy countries, man. That's amazing. That is amazing. But yet. I found myself still struggling financially they felt like I'd been slamming my head against the wall and nothing was working. And maybe that sounds familiar maybe that's something you've gone through as well. Maybe you have been trying everything to build that business may be been trying everything to get yourself to the gym to get get yourself to go back to school to spend more time with your kids and your family and your husband or your wife or your partner. Like, maybe that sounds familiar. You've just been slamming your head against the wall. Trying to do something and failing miserably. And yet every other part of your life is doing fine. But you know, that this one area that matters to you. But is important to you is not where it needs to be. And that causes depression. And so I found myself laying in bed. Crying washing episodes of the good doctor going back and forth between those two things on to get out of bed on able to really do anything. Like, so petrified by the feeling. I was having that I couldn't even muster the energy. And so I thought there and at some point it finally hit me what was going on the truth is I was scared. I was afraid I was terrified. I was terrified of being successful. I was terrified of being a failure. I was terrified of trying and having to face the truth of it. And so every single day the reason I was slamming my head against the wall. And nothing was working was because I didn't want it to work. I was sabotaging myself. I wasn't going all in. I wasn't putting as much energy as I knew. I could I wasn't sacrificing the things I knew I needed to sacrifice to make this thing work. I wasn't doing what I needed to do. Because I was afraid because I was petrified. Petrified that I'm good enough. And that I can have all the success that I wanted. I'm scared of that because that means change, and by the way, you're afraid of that too. Whatever you're struggling with right now, you were frayed of losing what you currently have even if that thing is not great, even if that thing is not what you want in your life. You were afraid of losing it because it is a part of you. It is how I define yourself. It is become a part of your day to day life. And therefore, you are not willing to sacrifice it in exchange for the potential of something better. And that's what I was feeling. I was fearful of my own inevitable success. But I was also fearful. Of the potential for failure. And this one makes more sense, right? Of course, you're freed of failure. You don't wanna try because that means disappointing yourself if it's not true. You don't wanna try because you have these fantasies in your head of who you are. And what you could do if only dot dot dot. And so you never try because if you never try the fantasy stays alive. And so I found myself in that bed. Crying upset oppressed. Sad feeling angry at myself all of the stuff all of the stuff at the same time and unable to get out of bed. And this realization hits me that I'm afraid I'm afraid of doing it. Both the positive and the negative. I'm afraid of all of it. So I'm just gonna curl in this bed and not do anything. And once it hit me, I'll be honest. I felt helpless. I felt helpless because I realized if this is fear what the heck can I do about it? It's difficult to challenge. Fear. It's only. When I sat down and realize something that it became clear because here's the truth. Success is scary. Success is really scare. You have to sacrifice something that, you know, for the chance at something that you don't know. And then there's the whole fear of what if you get success in lose it or what if you get minor success in can't get any further. Like, there's all these other on knowns with success failure is also scary. Because failure means facing the truth. Failure means maybe I'm not as good as I think, maybe I'm not as capable as I think, maybe I'm not as smart as I think all of a sudden, you're challenging your identity. And so also, you're losing something you're losing a part of you in that failure, both insect sess end in failure. You're losing a part of you and you want to hold onto that. And so you stay right in the middle and do nothing, but you know, what's scarier than both of them. You know, what is most fearful? Getting stock. Because humans are wired for progress. I've said this a thousand times on this podcast humans are wired for progress. We want to move we want to go forward. We've progressed so much throughout history through every single revolution. That has happened the agriculture industrial the current one of AI in technology. We've progressed so much and we have progressed because we are wired for progress. We want to move forward and want to be better. And so that feeling of being stuck. It's worse than fear. It's worse than fear because being stock. You know, what that is? You know that feeling you know, that when you're stuck and you can't move and there's nothing you can do about. It exactly comes in panic sets in fear sets in. So here's the big takeaway. This is what helped me out of this rotten? I hope that it may be helps you to. Success is scary. Failure is scary. But the scariest the ball is getting stock. And if you can just remember that in those moments where you are doubting yourself in those moments where talking yourself out of it in those moments when you feel afraid of doing anything because either you're gonna win or you're going to lose in both feel bad. When you're in those moments. Just remind yourself. Being stock is not an option being stock is tantamount to suffocating. And that's much worse than loss. So embraced the loss in whatever direction. It goes. Maybe you lose the old version of you for something way better. Or you lose the identity of you, the idea of you for the truth, but embrace that loss because being stock with no movement, and no hope of it is far worse. To hope that helps this is definitely something that I am personally still working on a lot of ways. I mean, I'm recording this episode like four or five days after being there myself. So this is definitely a conversation. This is definitely meant to be something that we have together.

I mean so what I really want is a client one of my first questions is almost always that's the kind of business where the approach the tape is is amazingly effective we amount so that's that's what we're focused on so we start by sitting down with a work right they're they're taking care of their clients now we get to do the really easy part which is finance you know things that you've you've certainly spent a lot of time Arkadi so over and over again run into the same set of issues like if we just put signed with this now argue audience that were growing so what we're doing is building that Marketing Foundation Sir if you don't see commission check in the next sixty ninety days a lot of companies is working with have small sales teams right yeah it's typically I'm a big fantasy rem's but serums of Longman built the wrong way right there the at the magic that happens if you actually capture everybody who's in your audience insight driven New Perspective you're bringing at our audience has and we put our effort grady really great content and then we just get process in place in order to really make it work got it we started alluding to something so you seem quite taken there's just an insight driven approach to sell and the bottom line is creating this experience abridging your experience across working with hundreds of thousands of businesses like that one prospect this perspective across the whole industry so if you've leverage that and bring it to the table sneaks applying to the small sales teams that were talking about and one Magin if the company who's in a much better place to actually do that than one individual cells now your best sales reps suddenly have third time to sell and repairing your other yeah I saw the stat similar which was actually rep spent thirty five percent of their time modifying on a third of their time selling and I don't think that's ever going to change but to your second point which is much more focused on what the buyers experiences working with you during that time the so much resources and information I think the question you really have to ask yourself in your own opportunities is is to become part of that process and if you WANNA audience and and driving insight and perspective yeah and I think there's in Las Vegas which just F- Why people listening to this we'll been long make sense of it and I think that's that next level of insight really is over-done smart people there's been a book written by some Professor Stanford all thing couldn't agree more and and you talk to even even someone you don't sell becomes a referral but do you think we overdo this whole idea of of sales being consultants because Russian and I've always thought that same thing so you know as an individual inspire people to take action and these are things that that leaders do and I I wonder them a different way to look at what they do so that they they move in the right direction early leverage the strengths that they have then you're gonNa have somebody who really is truly gather to really be truly effective as a particular for B. Two B. Sales on your perspective on this is this idea about because again back to challenge ourselves they completely misunderstand what a relationship means and sales and serve interested what's said they have right is that when you talk about a very traditional relationship person is someone who is really good at building relationships it's just that's and isn't able to build the relationship obviously going to be better if you put both of us to get Dell's and want respect relationship Yada again don't right you have to have trust after credibility have some acumen sorta leads is I think that if you're that superficial relationship person that it just taking some other time some other energy but ended the day you've got nothing to give the really helps them buying experience people on their high horse about relationships it's the real value provider to you unique to trust me you need to I think they have a I think they're making a good point but did it in a way that it doesn't really oh you to the relationship that's what they're trying to say I just don't think prospered yeah more from the customer perspective is sales who get sucked into the customers that will comfortable because they're not challenging me at all and I think that's where a lot L. approach in applying it to the general marketing message that that you're pushing out to your audience you get attention to what makes makes your solution unique they need to do to compete against these much larger companies as I need to look for I need to there's real people standing behind your solution so take take full advantage of that pitted page after the homepage is always what is always without understanding who you are they your large better doesn't have to do that because they you that right at the front of of of the story that you are online and they make sure that you're really controlling why they do this but you get to the bottom of the page and they'll be nothing there
The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 174: How Porn Affects Your Sexual Beliefs
"Welcome to the porn reboot podcast where you get practical tips to gaining control over your phone or sex addiction I'm your host. JK maisy certified sex and porn addiction recovery coach. Welcome to the episode. Today. We are going to dive into another sex myth moments. And Sex mate moments for those of you who are just joining the podcast for the first time are episodes where we tackle certain myths about sex and sexuality which. Of. Gade traction and our culture and society. And the myth we're going to be dealing with today is that. Pornography does not affect my sexual belief. And this is where you feel that. Yeah. Watch pornography and I watched it to entertain myself I. Watch it to feel good I watch. It's masturbaters, watch it to enhance my sex life, but it has nothing to do with my core beliefs about sexuality. The more time they use spend on inaugural. The more differently, you are going to look at people. It is impossible to expose yourself to pornography over a prolonged period of time and not view other human beings the different way. Because for the most part you were watching other human beings have sex. And you're going to go out into the world and you're going to see other human beings who are same age same race, the same gender, the same ethnicity. You're going to see those same people, not obviously not the exact same people, but people who matched that same criteria, human beings. And you're going to see them in their day to day life. You have an idea of what people like naked. But. The truth is when you spend so much time viewing inaugural. It means you're spending a lot of time in a heightened biochemical states. Watching people having sex exclusively. It's something that you enjoy more than other things. You do you enjoy watching people. Having sex. You don't enjoy other people watching other people working. You don't enjoy watching other people having conversations. You don't enjoy watching other people just going about their day to day activities. You enjoy watching human beings having sex, and you are addicted to watching other human beings having sex. That means you have reduced other human beings. Into, objects. These people are objects for your pleasure. If. You spend more time. Watching other women having sex, then you do speaking to women, then you do actually having sex with women. And quite naturally, you're just going to see other women s she's She's Just, something that appeanas goes into from different angles. You start to lose attraction. So you'll real-life sexual partner. Because you're spending more time. Watching other people having sex, you're turned on by other people you're turned on by other people's bodies your turned on by the way, other people speak look and act. Other. Things Begin to happen when you buy into this myth. You Begin to view some women's casual friendliness. As sexual. Advances. This is a huge what? And I've seen this in even the most sophisticated of players. When I say players, I, mean men who have gay men who know how to get women I've seen the men. Who are addicted to pornography and a decent would women completely screw up their game because they view everything? That a woman says casually especially an attractive woman, she's a woman is nice to them. was smiles the that or anything like that. They get obsessed. She. Wants to fuck me. BTF. He's down to faulk. She's you know. She's into me. and. You start seeing this everywhere sometimes even if the woman is not casually friendly, if you catch a woman making eye contact you twice in the gym Goldman, she wants to fuck me. That's literally what you saw thinking and you may think that this is a man thing. But you don't actually know. That it's a porn thing. I've had clients. WHO. Reach out to me and say like Oh. You know there's this woman at work or this this woman college of this this. Woman here and there, and and I'm pretty sure she's into me. Nine not attend times almost ten out of ten times in many cases. Are, completely misreading the woman. and. It's not because they don't have the social calibration. It's because the they did habits, but pornography has thrown that off. If, you are not spending enough time interacting with women women and learning how to read their body language and understanding how they are, and you spend more time viewing pornography than you spend on that. Or you're going to completely misread women. Another thing that happens when you believe the myth that inaugural does not affect. Your sexual believes this when you see behavior which is sexually aggressive. Usually. Don't think it's that serious. Like it's that's not a serious, that's not that's not too bad. Right. That's not too bad. That's because pornography. These days is for the most part. Rough and violence. There's no love making anymore. Everything. Is Rough. And that was when I stopped watching pornography years and years ago. God only knows what it's like today. But when you see people being sexually aggressive. It's it's not that big a deal. And the truth is that. Most. People are not into sexually aggressive behavior. The final thing that happens when you buy into man that. Does not, affect a sexual beliefs is that. You, begin to feel I call it dirty. Because you start realizing that. Your a completely different person. When you viewing pornography at masturbating. Compared to when you're not viewing pornography. It becomes so clear. What happens is you could be. Out With family and just a casual family setting. Social Setting meeting the family members of meeting platonic friends. And suddenly you start feeling strange feel like isolating you feel like. You can't have. Platonic conversations and interactions for a long period of time. Without experiencing. Shame. because. That's tiny little cues. That in the past. When you saw those cues, they weren't a big deal, which is psycho. That's you know that's a woman who has a certain shape, but she's a platonic friend or she's my wife's sister while she's my cousin. But now, you can't see those things without. Them pornographic in nature. and. On the conscious level, you're making them pornographic in nature. But on the unconscious level, your mind is fighting against that mind is going like Yo that's fucked up. Even, though you think you can brush it off. You still experience shape and you cannot run away from it. And so? I'm going to continue breaking down these myths brother. Over the next couple of weeks, because it's important for you to challenge beliefs and upon reboot system often say that. You need to work with. Your mind with your brain instead of Gangsta. And working against your brain. Is. When you'll? Believe the conscious desire I wants to quit pornography. Does not. Match. With your unconscious belief. And y'all unconscious beliefs could be things like you know, women, objects, a women who smile at me who are friendly with me are interested in me. Right. It's okay. It's be sexually aggressive. All women wants to be dominated and so on and so forth. So part of what we do in deporting reboot system is we help you align your unconscious beliefs with your conscious beliefs. We challenge the wrong and mistaken sexual beliefs. Show you what the right ones are. An, once it's an alignment, your shame starts disappearing. Your life becomes so much easier. And you'll reboot becomes a much smoother process. One of the problems with many forms of therapy and many other modalities is that they do not address the unconscious belief sometimes. Yeah. Focusing on the root cause sometimes focusing the trauma. Sometimes, they're focusing coping strategies and skills. But they're not hitting everything. Do not working on the root cause. Dan Not working on the coping strategies and the unconscious beliefs all at the same time. and. That's what the porn reroute system is about. It's simple, but it's not easy. Some-. GonNa. See you guys later on the week as we talk about we tackle. Another myth and I'm really looking forward to next one I. Think you're going to enjoy it. I'm Jay Yoga Struggle.

Dont Wait to Lien. How the Coronavirus is Impacting Lien and Bond Claim Deadlines
"Hello everybody this is Alex. Barth that with a lean zone DOT com. Today were talking to a fellow attorney in my office. Nick Fernandez how you doing today Nick. Pretty Good Yourself Alex. Good so you're at home. I'm at home Following the CDC guidelines right that we need to keep our distance from one another. They Save Azza. How's IT being Corentin? Honestly business as usual going out to the balcony to get some sun or something. That's about it. Yeah I know. That'd be like on the occasional run which I think is still allowed right under the Miami Dade County Order. Yeah exercising or you can do that. Just needs to stay six feet away from anybody else right exactly so. Let's get right into a nick. We're going to talk today about why it's important to lean early Because we've run into some issues actually in our office right where people waiting a little too long to be nice has resulted in problems. So tell us a little bit about some of the best ways a company can try to collect some of their debts right so to collect the dead. You have many options available to you To do that you can obviously go out to your customer. You can record leans which is a claim on the property itself against the owner or you can make a bond claim if there is a bond Posted for your project. So in addition to doing that you can utilize demand letters lawsuits. Are you name it to to move forward on those rights now? What about the idea that you know? People are a little conscious much more conscious now than they. They may have been in the past about wanting to take too aggressive and approach. What are your thoughts on that? Well all companies are feeling the backlash that the virus has has imposed on the economy so as business slows down. It's conceivable that some of your customers may be unable to pay their accounts as quickly as they previously would. And I'm going to interrupt your nick. I would tell you that. Even if they are there are many that are able currently but because cash is so precious there people that are slowing down their payments as well. So it's not that not all of them can just sometimes they just want to just hold that money a little tighter So what are some of the ways that Were handling that. You're handling that for our clients so we are negotiating their forbearance or installment for the payments that are due and we're doing that in two ways And when I say two ways because what what truly matters is keeping in. Mind the deadlines that you cannot get around. So when you're dealing with leans bombs you have to make that initial claim within ninety days of your last date of work so customers who only need Thirty sixty additional days to pay off their statements of accounts that's acceptable and that's how you can still settle a claim without having to preserve your rights via leaner bond claim but for those customers of our clients that we find need more than ninety days to pay off their statements of accounts were advising that look or advising our clients to communicate to customers and and quite frankly for them. Don't be alarmed by us. Making a bond claim or BIOS recording laying on the project. Just know that all we're doing try preserve our rights. We have approximately one year from making that initial leaner bond claim trucks. You file a lawsuit. So as long as the customers able to become current on that statement of account prior to that one year mark then businesses as usual. And the Party's able to resolve their claims without having to necessitate litigation right so there's a way to be nice but firm is what you're saying right protect your rights do it nicely but recognize that you have your own business to protect and you need to get paid in order to keep paying your employees in pay your own obligations rant insurance right exactly covering yourself is most important during these times. Because that's what you WanNa do but also working with your customers may leave a lasting impact that will maintain that business relationship in the future right. Because you're always trying to balance the I need to get my money now with. I don't want to burn a bridge in the future exactly so to other things to keep in mind right that we do sometimes One piece of advice that I give clients is if you're going to give someone a discount in order to induce payment. Make sure that when you when you do that you condition the the discount on payment by dates Burton so we see sometimes clients with. They'll give a discount and as a result Thinking that it was conditioned on payment. 'cause that's what they may have said but then they never get the payment but they've already issued a credit memo or a discount so if you're going to give credit make sure you say. I will reduce your balance from eighteen thousand to fifteen thousand so long as I get the fifteen thousand by June. I the other thing is payment plans. Why don't you tell us a little bit about payment plans? Which is I guess. You could also call it a note right. Tell us there. There's a benefit to doing that. So there's a benefit to doing it as long as you have it in writing. I mean it's very important that that you note that so the parties all understand the terms. They're they're now agreeing to but the benefit in that is that you can avoid a certain costs that would come with enforcing your rights via litigation. So by doing that you still get the same end result sooner rather than later without having to sort of nickel and dime your clients for something they may have otherwise. Been able to pay you upfront right as well even if you have to liquidate litigating against a payment plan with the proper terms in it of course such as the right to recover fees then. Y-you Which again is very similar to a note. It just makes the case much easier. It eliminates if drafted correctly the claim that will the materials were late or your work was no good. You know you can take a lot of a lot out of that. A lot of that out of the equation if you structure your payment plan correctly. Right corrected eliminates data certainty so When is the best time to lean nowadays? Now that we're running into this These situations should I wait till the last minute. So that's an interesting question. And the reason being is with all the social distancing. They have closed the clerk's offices where you can go in person to record a claim of lean so Is the is the clerk closed? The clerk is not closed. The clerk is still available via electronic. Submissions issue is with those eletronic. Submissions cannot guarantee. That'll be done the same day as if you had walked into the clerk's office so for that reason you need move sooner rather than later. Insecure in your lane writes by Submitting the claim of lean recording earlier than normally would've because allowing ten plus business days for recorder's Office to get you claim of lean is ideal. Because fortunately there's no wage bring yourself to the front of the line does no extra fee you can pay to give your lean priority status it. You just fall in line with everybody else. It's in this day and age when when you would We're from your phone. You can order groceries or a pizza delivered in minutes if not an hour. One would assume that if I'm recording my lean electronially. I'm going to get it done right away. But that's not the case right not at all. It's it's unfortunately if if that's what you think you'd be wrong. What seems to What actually happens is that the people the public officials that currently work at the clerk's office still have to do it manually. The difference is instead of it coming in because you're waiting in line is coming in through this electronic Q. Right exactly yeah and as we have found out Or I should say we told our clients. There's no way to jump around in that queue wherever you are. That's what you're going to have to wait. Why don't you tell us a little bit about the situation? We had recently with a client that had a lean that we were able to overcome But they waited to the last minute which made it harder so it was very difficult. Because had that recorder's Office Been Open. We would have been able to go in person to record it and then we did. We tried and there was a police officer out front. Didn't allow anybody to go inside so instead what we did is we submitted that lean together with David stating look. We try recording on this day prevented from doing so instead. Here's what we're doing. A to attempt to fulfil lean obligation by timely recording. However no guarantees are made because we are walking uncharted. Uncharted WATT upstart. Were navigating through uncharted. Waters here so for that reason you know the the best way to go about. This is to use ample time recording your lanes rather than waiting to the last minute and now you know having this. David certified that we timely submitted online which we are inserted whether the will be recorded on. Because what's important to understand. Is that your Lena. Smart with the date that the recorder that the clerk stamps it not the date submitted to the clerk's website. So what we're telling our clients is when you get to a bad day sixty from your last work. You really should be starting the process of moving forward with your lean. You should not be waiting Past about the sixty to to to do it and you get into very dangerous territory when you get into day you know anything past day eighty Because don't forget it has to be prepared. It has to be reviewed it has to be signed to notarize and then the original or copy will be the old days a week ago. The original could be taken to the office nowadays. You gotta scan of color copy and submitted to the Q. And some counties are a week two three weeks so yeah. Don't don't delay. Let's end nick by talking about Last work you know. I saw the recession people hoping that the well the job is going to start next week. It'll be the week after notably the week. After and they've demobilized they've delivered their materials or not working on the site and then it never came back and therefore they lost their lean rights. Is that a concern. We have in this economy. Yeah the the ongoing concern. This economy is that there is the interruption of construction projects and arising from the interruption of those construction projects. You don't know when your next date of work will be slim Most conservative approaches to consider the last eight. You were on your job as the last date of work meeting. You need to begin tracking your lean deadlines from the last day. You touched that project and counting ninety days from that date because if the project's don't open up and you did have more work to do. You don't have the ability to argue while I hadn't completed my scope of work. That's not an argument. That's viable to vile argument. Is what was your last date of work. And did you make a claim of lean within ninety days of the last eight to preserve your rights? Give that answer is no that you have forgotten the opportunity to to make your lean claims so we want our clients to be as conservative as possible in in being sure that they understand that the last date of performance of labor the last date of delivery of materials or the last eight that for example. If you're a rental equipment company the last year it was available for use on. That project should be considered your last date for the foreseeable future and union begin counting that lean deadline from that allows date. Even though you do have the hopes that the project will open up again in that business will be as usual. Yeah because if it doesn't you'll have lost your lane writes in Let me let me end with a few final comments. Remember last work does not include punchless or warranty work so those days even though you may have done work if it was punchless warranty work. Those don't count towards your last. Ninety days is ninety calendar days including every weekend and legal holiday through the ninety days. You Start Day one on the day after your last day at work. So today's the last day I did work than day. One is tomorrow. I count ninety full calendar days and the last calendar day needs to land on a week a week day That's not a legal holiday or that. The court is closed to accept the leans We have a tool. I know it's on your desk. It's on my desk. We have an APP to it's called the COW Q. Lean if you want to send us an email. We'll send you one for free. So you can calculate the lean and bond deadlines All on your own The last thing I'll I'll end with. Nick is if someone had questions for you about securing their rights on a project. What's the best way to get a hold of you? The best way ahold of me is either email or phone or otherwise you can look up general construction questions on the beams on dot com Yet we'll put your phone number and email address in the in the show notes and everybody I would urge you. Don't wait to the last minute to record your lean in the last recession we saw that our clients the clients of ours that got paid. Were those the headline rights and the ones that didn't Are those that for for? Went there lean rights and as a result. You don't want to be that person that loses your lean rights and doesn't get paid so I would suggest you record early And secure your rights If you guys have any questions let us know Nick and I are happy to answer any questions. You have stay safe neck. Hopefully I'll see you in person soon by quiz.
GwG | How Should Your Schedule Look in September?
"Hey. Jake. Hey. Michael. Hey what's Gargle? Dargo is a group purchasing organization. So our focuses one hundred percent of the dental industry helping practices save money on services. They already use so that they can stretch their marketing dollars further than they ever have. Awesome and in this series, Jake from Google is going to provide exceptional strategies, tips and tactics that will help you grow, find and retain quality patients. This is growing with Gargle. Subject. How's it going? Good Michael, how are you doing I'm doing pretty good man. Thanks for asking. So this is going to be. An extensive subjects, let's just jump into it and we've got this question quite a bit and we're seeing it all over. So how? We're asking the audience pretty much. How does your schedule look this fall and why is this a relevant question Jake. Well I think it's at the front of everybody's mind because we just went you know sixty ninety days depending on which state you're in without seeing any hygiene patients and so obviously the success of a dental practices, the reschedule rate of Your Hygiene Schedule and how successful are we at reappointing and so if if we didn't see anybody for cleaning and hygiene back during those ninety days, the everything was shut down. That's going to be a pretty painful gap to fill come fall. So I think everybody's thinking about it. Everybody's scrambling and really brainstorming with their teams right now on how to fill that. It's about fall schedule. So Question for sure. And so what can we be doing at are scheduled for former like there's a huge dip. Yeah. There's a few different things honestly I love, and I give credit to dental until. They have a little over eight thousand practices on their platform right now, and they did a great webinar a week or so ago. That talked about What those eight thousand practices are seeing on their hygiene schedules come October, and so you know getting into September October November? That's six months from when this pandemic hit. and. They talked a lot about how the staff is not going to be able. Doesn't matter how much time we give them between now and then. If. They dedicate. Forces toward that, they're still not gonna be able to close a gap. So they talked about the importance of utilizing tools to send out automated messages and encouraging online scheduling and inviting people through. Text message blasts and the email to your patients that didn't come in or anybody that's not currently scheduled in order to encourage them to book their appointments for that fall time to fill in an and I think that's a brilliant approach because it doesn't matter if you have your whole front desk staff dialing on everybody in your database or just simply not going to get a hold of enough people. To fill that void. So there's a lot of tools out there that are that are very. Relevant right now to helping bridge that gap and sure up what the staff is doing is the staffel certainly do part of that but they're gonNA fall short if people don't start planning ahead right now by utilizing some of the other communication tools and some of their marketing reach with their social media and other things to try and close the gap. Yeah. Definitely because I mean the step has to do much more than just. What they're not dedicated solely to just reaching out to reappoint or anything like that. But so do you recommend we? Start reaching out now like an like how often like so let's just say we email them. We send them a reminder. We don't hear back from them then what? Yes. Oh, I think there's a few different things you can do. One is first and foremost find a tool to put on your website for online and scheduling and I know that's a touchy subject. A lot of people say, no, I don't. especially. Those that are a little bit more control. A little OCD THEY WANNA control their schedule and make sure people schedule appropriately but. You can fix that it's easier to fix somebody who may be scheduled themselves for an hour on your hygiene appointment, and you only need forty forty five minutes with them a lot easier to fix an existing appointment by at least giving the opportunity for people in sending out a bit station for them to schedule themselves than it is for you to try and get them on the phone or communicate with them personally before. It's too late so. That's that's an easy fix where getting on your website, a link that you know whether you have local matters. Or something of the sort there's you know swell has one of our partners they have their new online scheduling tool that is available and it allows for people to I mean you can easily just take that link blasted out under social media inviting people to schedule but there's a few ways you can do it. You can. You can set it up where the next available appointment Tom I'm is mid-september for them to plan ahead and schedule. Once. The kids are back in school or that's a whole political issue in itself. Right now is You know practices are juggling what their staff is going to be able to handle because of their own families and which kids are going back to school which ones aren't who's offering for all these other. Options and things like that. So. Definitely an interesting time that we are in. But answer your question I. Think the most important thing is give yourself and opportunity to win right now by placing a link that invites people to schedule Appointments Make those hygiene appointments for the people that you're trying to recall on right now available starting in September October so that people are are scheduling their. In advance then some form of normalcy and routine starting to settle back into their life. Yeah awesome awesome. So yeah, definitely I think. That's a really really good way. Especially, if people do have a lot of our listeners do have local medicine, they can easily use that but I know swell to even have that website chat, right? So they can easily just. Go in there and further ask questions or any concerns or anything like that. They have. Right. So it's Kinda like you're opening up more ways of communication right now, which is. Because it. Doesn't have to waste that much energy reaching you know. Yeah, it's it's like diversifying your portfolio universe, throw all your eggs in one basket, and so you need to create multiple channels of communication. So putting that link on your site for people to request an appointment you know putting the link for them to actually book their own appointments or. Engaging a web chat I don't know why in today's Day and age dentists and staff are still pushing back on a web chat feature swells web chat feature is fantastic because it doesn't tether the staff to the front desk all day long every day they have the ability to engage that you know the visit the website visitor can say you know, here's my question and fire it off in the form of you know looks like a chat to the consumer, but it comes in the form of a text, the staff they can do it on their computer they can do it on the APP they can do it on their phone. So that when they have time and they walk away from the computer you to help chair side or health check somebody out or check somebody in or answer a call. They can still communicate with that web visitor via text message because the swelled tool is designed to get into the consumer's pocket literally with their cell phone. So they can respond ten minutes later, twenty minutes. Later at the end of the day, they still have engagement without without what visitor. So web chat is a huge school that I definitely recommend and the other one that I recommend is. Going along those same lines is social media making sure that when you're inviting people under social media channels that. You're having somebody pay attention to if they're sending you a facebook message and that you're being notified of that. So anytime, we can open up patient communication at a time like this where we know that there's a void that needs to be filled, we need to be preparing ourselves and and encouraging our staff to pay attention to those tools and the guess they have enough going on. We're not providing them the tools to be successful and what are we doing and all that's going to be guys in the show notes below because I mean gargle covers of this, right? Yeah. They do. We got. We've got a lot of different tools for communication patient retention recall postcards. That's one that a lot of people don't realize we have access to sending out recall a point. Thank you cards you know we miss you cards and so all of that can be automated in a simple way for a really affordable price now. And makes the fun. Awesome. Awesome and guys don't forget if you are interested in Gargle or you want to know more about them on the Sean it's below we do have an exclusive deal with them. So make sure if you are interested, make sure you mentioned dinner marketing podcast mentioned the series or this episode and find out more gaudence below. So anyways, thank you so much jake, and we'll talk to you next week. Awesome. Thanks.

f5: Using Data to Overcome a Short Growing Season
"Here it is another farm five on farm small farm smart the other thing that we do on our farm and that's the only way we can get around or short season. Is that we timely. Plan things for it to be successions after successions we'll have two or three three seatings per bed and we'll have let's say radishes when the radishes are done. Were transplanting lettuces. The same date and for this to work. We need to know this ahead of time because we need to start the the lettuce four weeks earlier so when ends up happening is that in the winter we calculate for all of our beds. What's going to go? What time is going to be seated or transplanted? When is the harvest going to be done by? What is it going to be replaced with? And when do we need to do the starts for this to work in a timely fashion so this is the planning process that we we do and it just allows us to stay on track and to make sure that our garden is always in production and part of the growing season is done inside the greenhouse. Those four weeks that the lettuces have inside the greenhouse. That's four weeks that we gain in our season so crop lanning is a big part of our farming success and that was the reason why we started to use charts and to measure these things. Because we wanted to know if we're growing more of this for more of that Sh- you know what's the difference in terms of yields and again the unit the bed as a unit of measure really helps so we've calculated the yields for intensive spacings things for all of our crops and that helped us to determine which one to prioritize because the other step was also so considering that we don't have you know unlimited amount of space so given. There's a lot of the men. We need to prioritize certain crops. So what we did is we measured profitability and we did that in terms of revenues per bed but also the number of days that the crop occupies the space in in the bed. And so that allowed us to compare so let's say Broccoli's their ninety days. They gross out five hundred dollars lettuces. Five hundred forty five days so it's kind of a no brainer to prioritize more lettuces than Broccoli's in our short season but we did that. And that's really helpful also because by measuring. You know what you're doing and then you can make better decision making.
Thailands Hotel Bonds - A Clever Extension Of Buy Now, Stay Later #976
"Thailand's hotel bones our clever extension by now stay later maybe you could do something similar. A lot of businesses especially in the area of hospitality are offering by now stay later or by now travel later. So you pay for your combination now your ticket now all you'll spouse is now and it's valid for an extended period of time. Well, what the Tourism Authority of Thailand of done is taken a step further. They've got together with a bunch of hotels to offer what is essentially a hotel bond like a savings bond government bond in that you pay for something now and you hold it for a period of time. You don't use it for a period of time, but they once it finally matures it's actually worth a guaranteed return. So for example you. You buy a hundred dollar hotel coupon, you hold it for a sixty day period I. believe that's the maturation period of this thing, and then at the end of that sixty days, you can use it and it's actually worth one hundred and fifty dollars and I think that's something that a lot of businesses that are doing this by now use lighter type of. Type of optional promotion. It's something that you could offer. I. Guess to take it a step further and to give people back added incentive and the incentive is basically you get the cash. Now obviously, you get to hold the cash now and they cannot redeem it for a period of time whether it's sixty days or ninety days whatever you think is a reasonable period of time for your business and a return for the customer for your. Baya is. It. They get a guaranteed return on that. So they get something that's worth more than what they've actually paid for. So I think it's a great idea hats off to the tourism authority of Thailand and have a look at Your Business and ask yourself could you start offering something similar to these hotel bonds? I. Think it's a great idea already that is today I do thank you for your time and we'll be back again tomorrow. So yeah.

So what this means is that you accept the fact that you have a problem but deep down you very reluctance to admit that this behavior is out of control. You think that hey you know what I can just. I can swing back into it I can. I can regain control of this. I just needed to speak to somebody and these men who send me messages going like. I just need to have a little Chitchat with you. I just need to talk to you because they really feel that. Speaking came to me would give them some clarity that would somehow magically allow them to control their behavior which is often not the case. Unfortunately trial reboot also cannot really imagine a life without pornography right what I mean by this is that it's become such a part of your life that even though it has a negative impact on it deep down you secretly hope that you can control it and maybe later on use it in moderation nations and that does not work so what a trial reboot or does is that a trial reboot makes this secret deal with himself when he enters into any sort aww recovery program right and he's like here's the deal. I'm going to learn how to control this behavior. I'm going to end all the negative things which are happening thing to me right now as a result of this behavior and later on one day and a future I'll be able to do it all all again but this time it will be in moderation and I will control it. You're a trial reporter. That's not gonNA help up you. Try rebooting also still counts. They always counting days always Dave fifty four day forty day ninety in the porn reboot that system. We don't count now granted. It's very difficult during the first ninety days to keep track right but after ninety days most menges lose track of the number of days as they've been off pornography and that's fine. That's the purpose of this. We want you to focus on your wins and count your wins. Instead of counting down towards an ideal right the the Mormon counts the more they slip and this is a characteristic that is very common in trial reporters so in order to prevent yourself from breaking the rules true reporters a less likely to break the rules than trial reporters trial reporters always breaking the rules so your goal before you reach out to anyone for help is to make the decision to move from a trial re booder to assure shoe rebuilder there are exercises that I've provided which can help men move their mindset from being a trial router to becoming a true reboot and one of the places you you can find that is within our free facebook group now if you haven't joined it.
